I need this quiz done for tomorrow at noon. how much. this is marketing

1.            BatesManor Furniture:


a)       Given that


i)               the average Bates.Manor sales in a retail store that carries their furniture is $75,000 at manufacturer’s prices


ii)             the typical retail furniture store has a gross margin of 60%


Calculate the BatesManor dollar sales at retail prices in their average store.  Explain your reasoning and state any assumptions you make.


b)           As noted above, the gross margin of a furniture retailer is approximately                    

60%.  In contrast the overall gross margin in a typical supermarket is 26%, with the category GM’s ranging from 18% for “Meat, poultry and seafood” to 50% for “Bakery/Deli”.  Why are these Gross Margins so different in magnitude?  Suggest reasons and discuss your conclusions.


c)     Assume that BatesManor has just hired a new consultant. The consultant has noted the more furniture that people buy (i.e. “the bigger the pie”) the better the sales prospects for BatesManor. She has recommended that BatesManor greatly increase their advertising budget and focus their efforts on increasing the primary demand (i.e. the “size of the pie”) for furniture.  Carefully and critically review this

                         proposed strategy and advise Mr. Bates.  Explain your reasoning.

Given the above analyses is the test market (total cost of $40,000) economically justified?  Explain carefully.  Explicitly identify your assumptions.



b)  Write two 200-word (or less) memos  to Ms. Phoebe Masters making the respective cases for


(i)             the 5 ½oz package


(ii)           the 10 oz. package.


i.e. you are to incorporate the analysis presented in (a) above to support each package size in the separate memos.  Incorporate the notions of risk preference (from Ms. Masters’ point of view) into each memo.

Assignment 2.2: Policemen of the World Final Paper

Assignment 2.2: Policemen of the World Final Paper

Due Week 10 

You have already developed a thesis statement and developed an outline in which you explored two (2) real-life international incidents from the past five (5) years involving the United States as they received an elevated status as a world power. Now you will develop the final paper in which you explore your main points in detail.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Introduce your paper with your previously crafted thesis statement.
  2. Discuss two (2) international events involving the US military from the past five (5) years that can be traced back to a foreign policy created after the Civil War.
  3. Discuss three (3) aspects of US history since 1865 that has led to the US’s rise as a world super power policeman.
  4. Identify three to five (3-5) international incidents since World War II where America has taken on a policing role.
  5. Determine three to five (3-5) driving forces that fueled international policy decisions involving the international incidents you outlined previously. (Consider treaties, exit strategies, elections, wars, etc.)
  6. Use at least three (3) academic references besides or in addition to the textbook. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze the rise of the United States to a world “superpower” and how that status has shaped its internal developments in recent decades.
  • Recognize the major turning points in American history since the Civil War.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in contemporary U.S. history.
  • Write clearly and concisely about contemporary U.S. history using proper writing mechanics.

economics two hous

You are the assistant to the CEO of a major company.  Your CEO keeps an eye on the competition, and asks you to do the following. Using ratio analysis, compare two major competitors in the same industry.



  • Pick any two U.S. public companies in the same industry.
  • You may obtain financial information and the companies’ latest annual reports on the web directly from MSN Money or Yahoo Finance. For additional information, look for the SEC Form10-K link from one of the MSN Money or Yahoo Finance financial sites. 
  • One of your two companies can be the same company you used in Week 2.
  • Select the 10 “most important” financial ratios for your two companies and calculate each for the last 2 fiscal years using Excel.  You should calculate at least one ratio in each category: liquidity, leverage, profitability, and efficiency.  Then, add other ratios where there are large differences between the two companies you chose.  That’s my definition of the phrase “most important.”
  • Follow the same format as the Drugstore Chains example (DrugstoreChains.xls). 
  1. Create a single Excel file for your entire assignment.  
  2. You should calculate, and comment upon, all 10 financial ratios for the last 2 fiscal years.  For each ratio, your comment should indicate which company has the better ratio.
  3. All calculations should be shown, and all answers should be thoroughly explained (a.k.a. “show your work”).
  4. It is often useful to compare financial ratios for a company with financial ratios of its industry, but this is not required. Industry financial ratios can be found on Morningstar.com, Yahoo Finance and MSN Money andhttp://www.bizstats.com/corporations.asp?profType=ratios
  5. What can you tell from your analysis?  In other words, which company is the stronger competitor overall? Give your reasons.
  6. Your Excel file should be submitted via the “Week 3 – Individual Assignment” link.
  7. Here’s how I’ll grade your sheet.  1pt for each ratio calculated correctly as your work should show; 1pt for each correct interpretation of the ratio (i.e. which company has the stronger ratio?); 1pt for your conclusion on which company is the stronger competitor overall (actually pick one or the other. no ties!);  1pt for your reason (a qualitative statement about the company that draws on but is not simply rehashing the analysis you’ve done) .   Total: 22pts.

1. Click this link – http://www.learner.org/resources/series138.html. When you get to the webpage, scroll down a bit and click the “VoD” link to the right of the program description for Video #5 called “The Developing Child”. This video is about 27-minutes in length. Point out which part of the video you found most interesting or intriguing? Explain why.

2. Data suggest that later adulthood is an especially rewarding time of life for most people. So why do you think so many of us think that being young is better than being old? Is this just a matter of ignorance, or does or society/culture actively perpetuate this myth? Explain your answer.
